More than 1,000 mourners gathered to say farewell to Yves Saint Laurent at his Paris funeral.  Adieu, indeed. [The Cut]

I'm not sure how we males are intended to interpret this trend, but it's always been said that menswear sets the trends for womenswear, so kudos to any of you who can make all-things-bugs look good. [NYT]

My childhood resurrected, Hypercolor t-shirts are apparently in again.  Something tells me this time around baseball cards and comic books won't be a viable barter. [Refinery29]

I think we were all a little shocked (perhaps pleasantly) when Burberry started dabbling in fluorescent colors.  The trend continues as, come September, they debut their Antarctic collection of watches that feature all black time pieces with brightly colored detailing.  If I've got to spend $695 a pop it's got me hoping this neon trend continues.

Issac Mizrahi: fashion designer, TV personality, groper.  And now new to the list? Beautician.  Turns out his favorite pomade, Black Diamond, has been discontinued so he has started making his own with jars of petroleum jelly.  He says he's thinking of selling it and calling it I-Hair.  Shocker. [NYP]

For the slight more modest crowd, top 12 trunks for guys. [Refinery29]
